I AM DOING A CAKE FOR A FRIEND. I NEED TO SET IT UP OUTSIDE AT A RESTAURANT. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY IT COULD BE HOT 90-100.

HOW WELL DOES PASTRY PRIDE HOLD UP IN THE HEAT?

I prefer Frostin Pride. Same product but holds shape better and you can use to fill and or cover cake. But don't use to cove if putting fondant over it. Whips up faster too. You can get vanila or chocolate.

Is Pastry Pride a regional thing? Or do you have to buy it online? I've never seen it in my area.

Pastry Pride does not sour or sag, however, it does get a crust on it. It cannot be in the sun. Heat should not effect it too much unless it is in the heat for a long time. I would have it well refrigerated and set it up at the latest time possible. Doesn't Livermore cool down quite a bit later in the day?

THANK YOU. FOR THE MOST PART, LIVERMORE DOES COOL DOWN IN THE EVENING. THIS IS A GROOMS CAKE FOR THE REHEARSAL DINNER AND IT WILL BE IN THE EVENING. HOPEFULLY WE WON'T BE HAVING A HEAT WAVEicon_smile.gif

Use Frostin Pride instead of Pastry Pride. You can buy it at Smart and Final. It takes colors better than Pastry Pride. It will be fine as long as you don't have the cake in direct sun light.
